First luau in Hawaii and I was not disappointed. Was greeted with smiles & a lei and took advantage of the cocktail drinks that were offered. The food was great. The entertainment was even better. The dancing and singing was professional and truly portrayed the beauty of the pacific culture. I highly recommend this luau. The fire dance was very... More

Interesting history along with your meal. Take advantage of the mai tai's before the buffet starts. Be sure to be seated on the outsides - middle tables get the buffet last and the quality starts to suffer

The history of the people interpreted through their food, songs, and incredible dances. Blown away! Cannot say anything negative about it.

This was just a run of the mill luau run by a hotel. First when you check in they try and milk every penny out of you selling you leis and taking your picture to sell you later. In my opinion it hurt the overall experience of the luau. The show was great as well as the food and free... More

If you want to see true Pacific with elegance and style, then the Island Breeze Luau is a must event to attend. It was my first time experiencing this amazing journey of the Pacific and I was not disappointed at all. From the greeting at the entrance of the Luau, you were welcomed with smiles and a lei, and then... More

I heard great things about this luau so I was super excited to go to it. Unfortunately it rained so the entire thing was moved into the hotel ballroom. They gave us the option to move our luau to a different date but this was the only time we were available to attend so instead of losing all our money... More

Very talented young people put on a great show.They keep the crowds attention. The food was labeled on the buffet so you knew what you were eating, lots of food to choose from and very tasty. The only thing I would mention that should be done differently is to make sure the food is served before it is too dark... More

Attended on 10/30/2014 and was without a doubt, the best luau we have attended in Hawaii. Food and Mai Tai's were outstanding and plentiful as was the show. I would highly recommend this luau to anyone looking for a fun night out and a taste of the real Aloha! We opted for the extra fee for early entrance and it... More
